I had in mind a couple of Tractor Tugs with about 10,000 hp each. It will probably take a three weeks to get her moving but from that point forward it should be a piece of cake! We're going to have to limit the palm trees due to windage though although backing into Baltimore Harbor with my own ice berg would beat yacht arrival any day of the week.

I guess we're going to need metal detectors to keep the LaBatts cans out of the ice crusher, once we're in business. I hear they've been discarded on ice shelves up there for a thousand years or so. At least it would seem so due to the sheer numbers!!!

Canadian/Carribean Ice Cold Beer Shelf Err berg

Actually, we all should be able to start one hell of an export business for Labatts, Stoo can load up his Hurricane, tow a couple of containers full down the St. Lawrence, meet you out in the Atlantic, set those babies up on the berg and by the time they get to you they'll be REALLY cold! Just think of the potential income off the tourists, HEY, WANT A COLD LABATT"S? Ice cold, imported from Canada....

Not just any polar bear piss, but double filtered polar bear piss. It actually starts off as piss even before the polar bear drinks it (note; any brew that comes in a green bottle or with a green label is piss);



and then goes through the patented Ursus Maritimus Renal Filter Process (TM), before it gets marketed as this;

Being something of a pessimist, the one big problem I see with this plan is in keeping the "crew" out of the "product"... There might not be a lot left to sell when it arrives!

Some years ago, I was on a live-aboard dive trip on the west coast. After our "week's worth" of beer ran out on the second day, we had to change our itinerary so it consisted of day trips in and out of Pt. Hardy. BC. The boat's cook had calculated that, based on the first day's consumption, we would need 420 cases of beer to last a week... But then there was 12 of us! (I think she might have been off a bit mind you... and we were younger then!)

Right you are P Tuber! Shure beats Carib beer which is single filtered cat piss. The yellow berg graphic is so striking it needs to be printed on our plastic bags when we market the ice.....

Hey, it was a big problem. The captain figured we'd sink his boat if we actually loaded it all on board!

You know what they say... It's no coincidence that there's 24 bottles in a case... and 24 hours in a day!
